          Getting work using your small truck. Sounds like a marketing problem.
          Tell us more about you and the truck. Are you using the truck for business NOW?? Where are you located??
          Do you have a BUSINESS NAME?? Guessing that the truck is licensed and has insurance.
          The Sides and Back of a truck are a great place to advertise. A slogan like "TRUCK FOR HIRE'
          with a phone number would be a great start.
          Market your services, identify customer demands, advertise, give out flyers to warehouses and businesses.
          Good luck, LUCKIEST

            Many apartment buildings and complexes have bulletin boards near their mailboxes or in the laundry facilities. Since people move in and out of those places a lot, it's a great place to post a flyer with tear-tabs or a business card pocket. College student unions are another good spot to post a flyer. If you live within walking or biking distance of a strip mall with lots of pass-by traffic, you might park the truck in a visible space near the street when it isn't being used with a "Truck for Hire" or "Need Help Moving Something?" sign on the side with your phone number. (Kinko's or someplace could make up a large, stick-on sign like that so you wouldn't have to paint the truck.) Hope this helps. Good luck!

              How about posting flyers at Home Depot, or a similar type of business? Maybe you can post this service on Craigslist too - such as in a furniture sales section? People are always buying furniture and deliveries by furniture companies are always expensive.
